Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Information
This product has required the extraction and use of natural resources for its production. It may contain
hazardous substances that could impact health and the environment, if not properly disposed.
In order to avoid the dissemination of those substances in our environment and to diminish the pressure
on the natural resources, we encourage you to use the appropriate take-back systems for product
disposal. Those systems will reuse or recycle most of the materials of the product you are disposing in a
sound way.
The crossed out wheeled bin symbol informs you that the product should not be disposed of along
with municipal waste and invites you to use the appropriate separate take-back systems for product
disposal.
If you need more information on the collection, reuse, and recycling systems, please contact your local or
regional waste administration.
You may also contact your supplier for more information on the environmental performances of this
product.
Pacemakers, Hearing Aids and Other Electrically Powered Devices
Most manufacturers of medical devices adhere to the IEC 601-1-2 standard. This standard requires
devices to operate properly in an EM Field with a strength of 3V/m over a frequency range of 26 to
1000MHz. The maximum allowable field strength emitted by the Dolphin terminal is 0.3V/m according to
Subpart B of Part 1 of the FCC rules. Therefore, the Dolphin RF terminal has no effect on medical devices
that meet the IEC specification.

Microwaves
The radio in the Dolphin RF terminal operates on the same frequency band as a microwave oven.
Therefore, if you use a microwave within range of the Dolphin RF terminal you may notice performance
degradation in your wireless network. However, both your microwave and your wireless network will
continue to function. The Dolphin Batch terminal does not contain a radio, and therefore, is not affected
by microwave ovens.

Battery Power
The intelligent battery technology built into the terminal features two types of battery power:
• The main battery pack installed under the battery door on the back panel.
• The backup battery located inside the terminal.
Both batteries work together to prevent data loss when the terminal is used over long periods of time.
Main Battery Pack
!
We recommend use of Honeywell Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery may result in
damage not covered by the warranty.
CAUTION: There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced by an incorrect type of battery. Please
refer to the Guidelines for Battery Pack Use and Disposal (see page 3-14).
The 7.4V, 14.1 watt hour li-ion battery pack is the primary power source for the Dolphin terminal and the
internal backup battery. The li-ion battery is designed to operate in a temperature range of -10 to 50°C
(14 to 122°F).
Installing the Main Battery Pack
Press Blue + Backlight keys to put the terminal
in Suspend Mode (see page 3-15) before
installing a new battery.
Mechanical Switch
The battery well area contains a mechanical
switch located under the battery door. When
the battery door is securely fastened, it
presses on the mechanical switch allowing
the terminal to power on and operate
normally.
When the battery door is removed, it no
longer presses on the mechanical switch,
which automatically suspends terminal
operation. The terminal will not resume
normal operations again until the battery
door is re-fastened.
Mechanical Switch
AC Power
The mechanical switch works as described only when the terminal is running on battery power. If the
terminal is running on AC power (via Dolphin charging peripheral), the mechanical switch will not suspend
the terminal when the battery door is open.
If you open the battery door and remove the battery while the terminal is connected to AC power, the
terminal will continue operating. However, if you remove AC power while the battery door is open and the
battery is removed, the terminal will shut down without suspending and you will lose RAM data. To avoid
data loss when removing AC power, always either suspend the terminal or install the battery prior to
removing AC power.
3 - 11
Charging Options
When the battery is installed in the terminal, you can insert the terminal into any one of the following
peripherals to charge the main battery pack:
• Dolphin HomeBase Device (see page 9-1)
• Dolphin ChargeBase Device (see page 11-1)
• One of the charging cables (see page 12-1)
To fully charge the li-ion battery outside the terminal, use one of the following:
• Dolphin QuadCharger Device (see page 10-1)
• Auxiliary Battery Well of the Dolphin HomeBase device
Charge Time
A completely discharged li-ion battery pack requires four(4) hours to charge to full capacity. Subsequent
charge times vary according to the charge level of the battery pack when charging begins.
The li-ion battery packs that ship with Dolphin terminals are completely discharged of power. Therefore,
charge the main battery pack for a minimum of four(4) hours prior to using the terminal on battery power.
Internal Backup Battery
Located inside the terminal, the backup battery is a 3.6V nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery.
The internal backup battery prevents the terminal from being reset when you remove the main battery
pack. The backup battery retains RAM data and allows the real-time clock to remain operational for up to
30 minutes. If the terminal is left without the main battery pack for more than 30 minutes, the internal
backup battery discharges and needs to be recharged to function according to specifications.
Note: Even if the internal backup battery fails, data and programs stored in Flash memory are not totally lost, but
the terminal does automatically cold boot when you install a fully charged battery pack and you need to reset
the real-time clock.
Charging
The internal backup battery charges off the main battery pack and requires eight(8) hours charge time to
backup RAM data for 30 minutes. You can begin using the Dolphin terminal after charging the main
battery for four(4) hours; however, the internal backup battery will continue to charge off the main battery.
To ensure that the internal backup battery functions properly, maintain a consistent power supply for the
first eight(8) hours of terminal operation. This power supply can be external power (using a charging
peripheral) or an installed, charged battery pack or a combination of both.
Guidelines
Follow these guidelines to maximize the life of the terminal’s internal backup battery:
• Keep a charged Li-ion battery pack in the terminal.
• Keep the Dolphin terminal connected to a power source when the terminal is not in use.
Managing Battery Power
Data and files saved on the Dolphin terminal may be stored in RAM memory; therefore, maintain a
continuous power supply to the terminal to help prevent data loss. When you remove a battery pack, insert
another charged battery pack in the Dolphin terminal. If the main battery pack is low, insert the terminal
into a charging peripheral to power the terminal and begin recharging the battery.
Note: If the main battery is low and the terminal is in suspend mode, pressing the SCAN trigger does not wake the
Dolphin terminal; you must replace the discharged battery with a fully charged battery.
3 - 12
Default Critical and Low Battery Points
Dolphin terminals are programmed to display warnings when the battery reaches critical and low battery
points. The following registry entry sets both warning points:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power]
There are two DWORD values in this registry entry: LowBatt and CriticalBatt. The default values for these
entries are as follows:
LowBatt=19 (25%)
This sets the Low Battery point to 25% (19 hex=25 decimal). When the battery hits the
percentage charge specified here, the user is notified by this icon in the Navigation bar
.
If the main battery is low and the terminal is in suspend mode, pressing the SCAN or Power
button won’t wake the Dolphin terminal; you must replace the discharged battery with a battery
charged over 25% mark before you can resume terminal operation.
CriticalBatt=a (10%)
This sets the Critical Battery point to 10% (a hex= 0 decimal). When the battery hits the
percentage charge specified here, the user is notified by this icon in the Navigation bar
.
Note: Warnings do not appear when the terminal is on external power.
Setting Critical and Low Battery Points
Developers can re-reset the default battery points in the RegEdit Power Tool.
1. Tap Start > Power Tools > RegEdit.
2.
Drill-down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > System > CurrentControlSet > Control > Power. The
CriticalBatt and LowBatt values appear in the list.
3.
Tap the Value Name to change the Value Data. You can reset the Value Data from 0 (no warning)
to 99 (would warn whenever the charge drops below 99%).
4.
Tap OK to save changes.
Note: For more information about the RegEdit Power Tool, refer to the Dolphin Power Tools User’s Guide, which is
available for download at www.honeywell.com/aidc.
3 - 13
Checking Battery Power
Tap Start > Settings > System tab > Power.
For more information, see Power on page 6-12.
Storage Guidelines
To maintain optimal battery performance, follow these storage guidelines:
• Avoid storing batteries outside the specified range of -4° to 104° F (-20° to 40°C) or in extremely high
humidity.
• For prolonged storage, do not keep batteries stored in a charger that is connected to a power source.
Guidelines for Battery Pack Use and Disposal
The following are general guidelines for the safe use and disposal of batteries:
• We recommend use of Honeywell Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery may pose a
personal hazard to the user.
• Replace defective batteries immediately; using a defective battery could damage the Dolphin terminal.
• Never throw a used battery in the trash. It contains heavy metals and should be recycled according to
local guidelines.
• Don’t use a battery in any other manner outside its intended use in Dolphin terminals and peripherals.
• Don’t short-circuit a battery or throw it into a fire; it can explode and cause severe personal injury.
• Excessive discharge damages a battery. Recharge the battery when your terminal indicates low battery
power.
• If you observe that the Honeywell battery supplied is physically damaged in some way, please send it
to Honeywell International Inc. or an authorized service center for inspection. Refer to the Product
Service and Repair section of this guide.
• Although your battery can be recharged many times, it will eventually be depleted. Replace it after the
battery is unable to hold an adequate charge.
• If you are not sure the battery or charger is working properly, please send it to Honeywell International
or an authorized service center for inspection.
3 - 14
Resetting the Terminal
There are two ways to reset the Dolphin terminal: a soft reset and a hard reset.
Soft Reset (Warm Boot)
A soft reset re-boots the device without losing RAM data. You would perform a soft reset 1) when the
terminal fails to respond, 2) after installing software applications that require a reboot, or 3) after making
changes to certain system settings.
1.
Press and hold the Red
+ ESC
keys for approximately five seconds. The screen turns white
and the decode and scan LEDs flash for approximately three seconds.
2.
When the reset is complete, the Today screen appears.
Hard Reset (Cold Boot)
!
A hard reset erases all of the data and applications stored in RAM memory and launches Autoinstall, which
re-initializes the terminal.
1.
Press and hold the Red
+ Tab
keys for approximately five seconds. The screen turns white
and the decode and scan LEDs light for approximately three seconds.
2.
The terminal re-initializes; see Boot the Terminal on page 2-1.
Note: Hard resets automatically launch a soft reset before ending on the Today screen.
Set the time and date after each hard reset to ensure that the system clock is real-time. Tap the date on
the Today screen to open the Clock and set the time and date.
Suspend Mode
Suspend mode suspends terminal operation. The terminal appears to be “off” when in suspend mode.
The terminal is programmed to go into suspend mode automatically when inactive for a specific period of
time. You can set this time period in the Power setting. For details, see the Advanced Tab section of the
Power (see page 6-12) setting.
To Put the Terminal in Suspend Mode
Press the Blue

keys. You should put the terminal in suspend mode when you change
the battery pack; see Installing the Main Battery Pack on page 3-11.
To Resume Terminal Operation
To resume terminal operation (or “wake” the terminal),
• Press the Backlight key
.
• Press the Scan Trigger (see page 3-6).
3 - 15
Troubleshooting
If the terminal does not wake when you press the scan trigger,
• The battery door may not be fully closed. The mechanical switch under the battery door prevents the

Activating the Engine
The scan trigger on the front of the integrated pistol-grip handle that activates the scan engine.
Scan Trigger
Using Demos
Demos are software utilities loaded on all Dolphin terminals that demonstrate the advanced features of
the terminal. Two Demos feature the scan engine: Image Demo and Scan Demo.
To access these demos, tap Start > Demos,
• Select Image Demo to verify imaging, or
• Select Scan Demo to verify decoding.
For more information about Demos, refer to the Dolphin Demos User’s Guide, which is available for
download from www.honeywell.com/aidc.
LEDs
The LEDs in the center of both keyboards (for location, see LEDs on page 4-1) light when using the scan
engine.
Scan LED
The LED on the right lights red when you press the scan trigger in scanning applications.
Decode LED
The LED on the left lights green when a scanned bar code is successfully decoded.
5-4
Decoding
The Dolphin terminal supports two types of image decoding: full-area imaging and Advanced Linear
Decoding (ALD).
Full-area Imaging
Full-area imaging means that the Dolphin terminal support omni-directional aiming, which
means that a positive read can be obtained from many positions. For details, see OmniDirectional Scanning Positions on page 5-4.
ALD
ALD provides fast reading of linear (1D) and stacked linear bar codes (e.g., PDF417). For the
best read, the aiming pattern should be centered horizontally across the bar code. When ALD
is enabled, the reader does not read matrix or postal codes.
To Decode a Bar Code
1.
Tap Start > Demos > Scan Demo.
2.
Position the Dolphin terminal over one of the sample bar codes on page 5-5.
A range of 4–10 inches (10–25 cm) from the bar code is recommended.
3.
Project the aiming pattern by pressing and holding the Scan trigger. The Scan LED lights red.
4.
Center the aiming beam over the bar code. The aiming beam should be oriented in line with the bar
code to achieve optimal decoding; see Omni-Directional Scanning on page 5-6.
5.
Release the Scan trigger.
6.
When the bar code is successfully decoded, the decode LED lights green and the terminal beeps.
Sample Bar Codes
You can use the following bar codes to verify decoding:
Sample 128
Sample PDF417
Code 128
PDF417 Test Message
5-5
Omni-Directional Scanning
Dolphin terminals support omni-directional scanning.
In general, the aiming pattern or beam is smaller when the terminal is held closer to the bar code and
larger when farther from the bar code. Symbologies with smaller bars or elements (mil size) should be
read closer to the terminal whereas larger bars or elements (mil size) should be read farther from the
terminal.
Note: To achieve the best read, the aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the bar code.
5300 High-Vis Aiming Pattern
The red high-vis aiming pattern frames the bar code.
5100 Green Aiming Beam
The green aiming beam projects outward in a straight line across the bar code.
Laser Engines (HP, LR, and ALR)
Laser engines do not support omni-directional scanning.
To achieve a successful scan, the red beam must completely cover the bar code as in the following
example:
To avoid specular reflection when scanning (i.e., the glare), do not aim the laser so that the beam is
reflected straight back. Instead, aim the laser so that it’s slightly off-center of the target bar code.
5-6
Capturing Images
The image-capture process is an intuitive, split-second operation for experienced users. By following
basic guidelines, however, new users can easily develop their own technique and, with practice, quickly
learn to adapt to different application environments.
Image Preview
When the imaging process is initiated, the screen displays a preview of the object. This is a
live video image of what the imager is currently viewing and has a slightly degraded
appearance compared to the captured image. This slight degradation is normal; the captured
image has a higher resolution.
File Formats
The Dolphin terminal is capable of saving images in a number of industry-standard file formats
such as BMP, JPG and PNG. The default file format for images is a grayscale JPG. To obtain
the highest quality images, take grayscale images.
File Size
Digital images have a maximum image size of 640 x 480 pixels and an image definition up to
a 256 grayscale. The image quality and related file size are determined by the data
compression method used by the software application used to take the image. The average
size of the image file is approximately 4–8K. However, the size of the image depends on image
content; the more complex the content, the larger the file size.
Taking an Image
1.
Tap Start > Demos > Image Demo.
2.
Point the Dolphin terminal at the object.
3.
Press the scan trigger to activate the engine. The screen displays a preview of the object.
4.
Adjust the Dolphin terminal’s position until the preview on the screen appears as you want it to
appear in the image.
5.
Hold the Dolphin terminal still and release the Scan trigger. The screen flashes and the captured
image appears on the screen.
6.
By default, the image is saved to the My Device folder (Start > Programs > File Explorer > My
Device). To save the image to another location, tap File > Save As.
High-Vis Aiming Pattern
If your Dolphin terminal is configured with an 5300 imager, you can enable the aiming pattern for imaging
in the Image Demo application. For details about the aiming pattern, see Omni-Directional Scanning on
page 5-6.
1. Tap Start > Demos > Imaging Demo > Options menu > Aimer.
2.
The aiming pattern is now enabled for imaging.
Uploading Images
Image files can be transmitted to a host workstation via
• Microsoft ActiveSync and a Dolphin communication peripheral, or
• Over your wireless radio network.

Dolphin terminals have two types of memory: volatile and non-volatile. Each type of memory has its own
options.
Volatile
Data stored in volatile memory does not persist through cold boots; see Hard Reset (Cold Boot) on page
3-15. Volatile memory is used for running and storing programs as well as storing program data and is
also known as RAM memory. The Dolphin 7850 terminal can have 64MB or 128MB of volatile memory
depending on your configuration.
Non-Volatile
Data stored in non-volatile Flash memory does persist through cold boots. The Dolphin 7850 terminal can
have 64MB or 128MB of non-volatile memory depending on your configuration.
IPSM:
(Internal Persistent Storage Manager) is the on-board Flash memory. Because this
memory is non-volatile, data and programs stored in IPSM are not affected when power is
removed or a cold boot launched. For this reason, default programs and files for Dolphin
terminals such as Autoinstall are stored in IPSM.
Storage Card:
The other type of non-volatile memory is a factory-installed Secure Digital (SD) memory
card. You can add up to 4GB of additional memory on non-RF units only. This card is not
user-accessible.
If you need to reformat the card, there is an EZFormat Power Tool on 7850s with a storage
card installed. For more details about EZFormat, refer to the Dolphin Power Tools User’s
Guide, which is available for download from www.honeywell.com/aidc.
Use the Memory system setting to check memory usage after you receive warning messages about
memory. There are three tabs: Main, Storage Card, and Running Programs.

Communication
Communication Options
Dolphin terminals offer a number of communication options including Microsoft ActiveSync, infrared, and
wireless radios.
I/O Connector
The industrial-grade, 17-pin, mechanical connector on the bottom panel (see I/O Connector on
page 3-9) connects the terminal to a series of Dolphin peripherals that connect to a host
workstation via USB (1.1 or higher).
When the terminal is connected to a host workstation in this way, you can use ActiveSync to
communicate between the host and the terminal. For more information about communicating
with ActiveSync, see Using ActiveSync on page 7-3.
IrDA Port
The IrDA port enables the Dolphin terminal to transmit data via pulses of infrared light to and
from other IrDA-compliant devices, such as printers, PCs, and even other Dolphin terminals.
For more information about communicating via the IrDA port, see Using Infrared
Communication on page 7-8.
Wireless Radios
Dolphin 7850 terminals can be equipped with a WLAN and/or Bluetooth radio. When the
terminal’s radios are enabled, you can connect the terminal to a wireless network for
communication.
For more information about enabling the radios, see Radio Manager on page 7-13.
Software Communication Programs
Dolphin terminals are shipped with the following communication software programs installed.
Microsoft ActiveSync v4.5 or Higher
Microsoft ActiveSync is a tool that enables mobile computing devices to exchange and
synchronize application data with a desktop computer. For more information, see Using
ActiveSync on page 7-3.
Remote Access Services (RAS)
RAS is a feature built into Windows NT that enables users to log into an NT-based LAN using
a modem, X.25 connection or WAN link. RAS is fully supported and allows the use of Point-toPoint Protocol (PPP) or Serial Line IP (SLIP) connections for network connectivity.

Installing Additional Software
Dolphin terminals ship with the operating system, radio drivers, and custom Honeywell software loaded
onto the device. These are the default programs that install when your terminal first boots up. You can
install additional software programs to the terminal provided that the following parameters are met:
• The software program was created for a Windows Mobile device.
• The terminal has enough memory to store and run the program.
• The program has an EXE, CAB, or DLL extension.
The most popular place to find software on the Windows Mobile web site: www.microsoft.com/
windowsmobile/products/pocketpc/
!
When selecting programs, verify that the program and version of the program are designed for the Windows
Mobile 5.0 and the terminal’s processor. You can verify your processor by tapping Start > Settings > System
tab > About > Version tab. Make a note of the information in the Processor field.
To install additional software, you can use the communication options described in this chapter.
See,
• Adding Programs via ActiveSync, page 7-4.
• Adding Programs From the Internet, page 7-7.
• Adding Programs via Infrared, page 7-9.
7-2
Using ActiveSync
ActiveSync communication happens through the I/O connector on the bottom panel (see I/O Connector
on page 3-9) when the terminal is connected to a Dolphin communication peripheral such as the Dolphin
HomeBase device or a charge/communication cable.
Hardware Requirements
• Dolphin communication peripheral or cable: USB or RS-232
• Power Adapter Cable from Honeywell
Software Requirements
To synchronize, ActiveSync 4.5 or higher must be installed and configured for the appropriate
communication type on the host workstation and the Dolphin terminal. Dolphin terminals ship with
ActiveSync already installed. Therefore, if ActiveSync is already installed on the host workstation, you just
need to connect the Dolphin terminal to the host workstation (via Dolphin peripheral) to initiate
communication.
If ActiveSync 4.5 or higher is not installed on the host workstation, install it from the Getting Started CD
that came with the Dolphin terminal. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive of the host workstation and
follow the directions on your screen. You can also download the most current version of ActiveSync from
www.microsoft.com and install.
The host workstation must have Windows 98 Second Edition*, Windows Me, Windows 2000, or Windows
XP installed.
Note: The HomeBase device does not support Windows NT when using a USB connection because Windows NT
does not support USB. *Windows 98 Second Edition provides full USB support.
Setting Up the Host Workstation
To sync successfully, ActiveSync must be configured for same communication type on the host
workstation and the Dolphin terminal. ActiveSync must be setup on your desktop computer before you
initiate synchronization from the terminal for the first time.
Verify that ActiveSync on the host workstation has selected the appropriate communication type by
opening ActiveSync and clicking File > Connection Settings.
For USB communication,
check Allow USB connections.
For RS-232 communication,
connect to COM1.
Note: You can have both USB and RS-232 selected in the software without affecting processing. However, your
hardware setup should use only RS-232 or USB, not both.
7-3
Setting Up the Terminal
!
When communicating via ActiveSync, your terminal is designed to be connected to the host workstation with
a Honeywell communication peripheral. We recommend use of Honeywell peripherals, power cables, and
power adapters. Use of any non-Honeywell peripherals, cables, or power adapters may cause damage not
covered by the warranty.
You need to connect the Dolphin peripheral to the host workstation, then connect the Dolphin terminal to
the peripheral. ActiveSync should attempt to connect automatically and self-configure to RS-232 or USB.
Dolphin terminals default to USB communication.
Verify the connection setting on the Dolphin terminal by tapping Start > Programs > ActiveSync > Menu
> Connections.
USB
The default workstation synchronization value for USB communication is ‘USB
Connection.
RS-232
The default workstation synchronization value for RS-232 communication ‘115200 Default.
Synchronizing with the Host Workstation
After setup, synchronization begins automatically whenever the terminal’s I/O connector connects to a
Dolphin peripheral that is connected to a host workstation with ActiveSync installed.
Note: If you have a wireless LAN card, you can also synchronize remotely.
Exploring the Terminal from the Workstation
When the terminal and desktop computer are connected, open the main ActiveSync window (on the
desktop), and click Explore.
The Mobile Device folder opens in Windows Explorer.
The Dolphin terminal is now treated as a mass storage device, and transferring files is as simple as
dragging and dropping or copying and pasting as you would for moving files between folders on your hard
drive.
Adding Programs via ActiveSync
!
When selecting programs, verify that the program and version of the program are designed for Windows
Mobile 5.0 and your processor. You can verify your processor by tapping Start > Settings > System tab > About

Dolphin HomeBase Device
Overview
As the hub of your system, the Dolphin HomeBase charging and communication cradle supports both RS232 and USB communication, enabling your terminal to interface with the majority of PC-based enterprise
systems.
Communication
RS-232 transmits data at speeds of up to 115 Kbps. With USB port, the data transmission rate goes up
to 12 Mbps.
These bases cannot be physically connected to each other–sometimes referred to as “daisy-chaining”–
but can be networked together through serial or USB hubs.
Convenient Storage
Intelligent battery charging makes the base a safe and convenient storage receptacle for your terminal.
Capacity
The base can charge two battery packs: the one that’s installed in the terminal seated in the well and the
other in the auxiliary battery well on the back panel. While charging the battery pack in the terminal, the
base also powers the Dolphin terminal. The auxiliary battery well charges a battery pack independently
of the terminal well.
Intelligent Battery Charging
The base completes a full charge of the main battery pack in less than four(4) hours.
In addition to charging, the base powers the intelligent battery charging system in the terminal that
protects the battery from being damaged by overcharging. The terminal senses when a battery pack is
fully charged and automatically switches to a trickle charge that maintains the battery at full capacity.
As a result, terminals may be stored in the base without damage to the terminals, battery packs, or
peripherals.
Power Supply
The base is available with US, UK, and European power supplies. Each version is designed to convert
the voltage from the power sources in each geography to the 7.4 volts DC required by the terminal.
!
We recommend use of Honeywell Li-Ion battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery may result in
damage not covered by the warranty.
For complete information about batteries, see Battery Power on page 3-11.

ActiveSync Communication
The Dolphin terminal ships with ActiveSync already installed and defaulted to USB communication. If
ActiveSync is not installed on your workstation, you must install it. For details, see Using ActiveSync on
page 7-3.
Communication Types
The base can communicate via USB or RS-232 using ActiveSync 4.5 or higher. However, the base should
have only one type of interface cable connected at a time, either USB or RS-232.
USB
The USB Port (see page 9-3) on the back panel allows the terminal to communicate with a
workstation or be networked through a USB hub. The base acts as a USB device by
interfacing the USB signals of the terminal to the USB signals of the host workstation.
Maximum data transfer rate is 12 Mbps.
RS-232
The RS-232 Port (see page 9-3) on the back panel allows the terminal to communicate with
a workstation, modem, or any RS-232 device using a standard serial cable and
communication software.
Maximum data transfer rate is 115 Kbps.

Using the Battery Analyzer
The fourth charging slot is also the CHARGE/ANALYZE slot because, in addition to charging a Li-ion
battery, this slot runs an Analyze cycle on the battery placed in it, which helps you monitor battery capacity
over time.
Analyze Button
The Analyze cycle is initiated when a battery is placed in the Charge/Analyze slot and the Analyze button
is pressed. In an Analyze cycle, batteries are completely discharged, then recharged to capacity. The
battery is completely reset and re-calibrated.
The amount of time required for a battery to complete the Analyze cycle depends on initial state of the
battery’s charge. Minimum time is 8 hours, maximum time is 12 hours.
Battery Capacity Indicator LEDs
These LEDs display the charge capacity of the battery at the end of the Analyze cycle. Battery capacity
is displayed as a percentage of measured capacity/rated capacity where each LED equals 10% battery
capacity. At the end of the Analyze cycle, these LEDs display the maximum charge level the battery can
now hold.
Status LED
The Charge/Analyze slot also contains a standard status LED in the upper, left corner of the slot. When
this slot is used for regular charging, this LED operates in the usual manner; see Status LEDs on page
10-2.
When this slot is being used to analyze a battery, its status LED functions as follows:
Solid Green
The battery has completed the Analyze cycle.

Universal Cable Features
In addition to the hardware peripherals, there are several cables you can use with the terminal depending
on what the needs of your work environment.
Intelligent Battery Charging
Dolphin terminals, peripherals, and cables are designed with an intelligent battery charging system that
protects the battery from being damaged by overcharging. When a battery pack is fully charged, the
charge process automatically switches to a trickle charge that maintains the battery at full capacity. As a
result, Dolphin terminals may be connected to Dolphin cables indefinitely.
Voltage
All Dolphin power cables contain a power adapter that converts the voltage from the power source to 9.5
volts DC, which is the maximum voltage the terminal can receive.
